    The series end in Ultima VII part Two, when the banes possess the party members, they actually possess you too. Everything that happens next is an hallucination.

    Including Trump's election.

    Next Marathon livestream will be in Starr Long's car.

    "Guys, if you give me 1000 € then I can make rent, if you give me 2 000$ then my family will get to eat. 3 000 $ and possibly I can find time to make a new sidequest or some other bullshit..."

    This is speculation, but I don't believe that Starr is an official employee of Portalarium anymore. His only official affiliation is as a part time consultant through his "The Acceleration Agency" company.

    It's always hilarious how they spin it positively.

    "We haven't been let down, we are taking matters in our own hands ! ". The day I get fired from my job, I will tell my wife : "Honey, it's time for me take care of my own destiny."

    Lord Shittish and Dorkstarr aren't even involved in the day to day operations of this scam anymore. It looks to be the Chris "AssToss" Spear's show now.

    It's really interesting to see how Richard Garriott has completely disappeared from the surface of the Earth, once again. It's also interesting how his Lord British persona is basically made absent of the game, leaving New Sosaria in the same state of Portalarium : broken and nonsensical.

    Time to reflect a bit on what went on, I guess. I never had much hope for "Ultimate RPG" to be very good, but I at least expected decent and sure did not think it would turn out into a catastrophic scam.
    I wonder how long they can pull off the "working from home" bit : I'm pretty sure anyone on the staff is seeing the writing on the wall and will find another job at the first opportunity. Good luck hiring to work on SOTA.

    The shame is that they do not admit it and they still sell ingame items and housing at a ridiculous price.

    I think it is now safe to say that Episode 2 is _NEVER_ happening. They do not have the ressource to pull it off.

    Maybe Richard Garriot's next game will be good.

    I want the RG/Chris Roberts/Peter Molyneux crossover game we all deserve.

    Three billions for Fraud British up in the sky,
    Seven for the Godus lord and AI overblown,
    Nine for Fig Investors doomed to die,
    One for Citizen Roberts on his dark throne
    In the Land of Kickstarter where the suckers lie.
    One Crowdfunding to rule them all, One Crowdfunding to find them,
    One Crowdfunding to bring them all, and in the darkness scam them,
    In the Land of Fig where the whales multiply.

    I was this close to backing the game on Kickstarter, happy I never did. I've seen someone donate their box to LGR, probably so they don't have to look at it.
